Two modern new combinations and a replacement name: Polyalthia fruticosa (Jessup) B. Xue & R.M.K. Saunders, P. hispida B. Xue & R.M.K. Saunders, and P. johnsonii (F. Muell.) B. Xue & R.M.K. Saunders, all from a paper in volume 61 of the journal Taxon by Xue & al. (2012: 1034). Reproduced by permission of the International Association for Plant Taxonomy. Components of the protologues are as follows: Names cited in full (generic name not abbreviated), authorship explicitly cited, and novel status indicated (“comb. nov.” or “nom. nov.”); all three items are best practice and should certainly be followed (even if strictly they are not requirements for valid publication under the Code).Basionym or replaced synonym indicated (“ ≡ ” indicates homotypic synonymy) together with a full bibliographic reference to its place of valid publication, as required for names published from 1953 onward (Art. 41.5); the basionym or replaced synonym is also cited (indicated does not necessarily mean cited), as required for names published from 2007 onward (Art. 41.5). Instead of the symbol “ ≡ ”, the word “basionym”, or its abbreviation (e.g. “basio.”), or its equivalent in another language may be used.Citation of type: again, this is good practice, although the Code does not require it for valid publication of a new combination, name at new rank, or replacement name.
